"In the pedagogical scheme, the ignorant person is not only the one who does not know what he does not know; he is as well the one who ignores that he does not know what he does not know and ignores how to know it. The master is not only he who knows precisely what remains unknown to the ignorant; he also knows how to make it knowable, at what time and what place, according to what protocol."

-- -Jacques Ranciere from The Emancipated Spectator

Here is the first part of my project for my Counseling Techniques class. The project in whole is supposed to demonstrate that I understand the three main therapeutic concepts active listening, empathy, and reflection of feelings. This project is a reflection on the therapist/patient relationship. The user switching through the buttons is symbolic for the patient. The act of button pressing is supposed to represent the patient’s act of speaking.¬†The recording that is played is my computer saying one of 4 responses: “Could you be…Stupid?” “You are…Handsome.” “From your nonverbals, I would guess you’re feeling…Animated.” “You sound…High.” There are 2 more sayings that I have added (“I hear you saying you feel…Speechless.” and “You feel fantastic because you are…Worthless.”) but need to upload a new video.¬†Anyways…

The user/client will then choose one feeling (stupid, handsome, animated, high, fantastic, or speechless) and type that word into a terminal on my computer. An RGB LED will display a color, specific to what the user input. Eg: stupid=red, handsome=green, high=blue, etc. This exemplifies empathic listening. The computer/therapist listens to what the user/client feels, and displays a color/empathy based on that feeling. I just finished this whole project and will update with video in the morning. I am wondering now what I should put the LED in? I assume I’ll just encase the button circuit inside a box and have only buttons visible but the LED housing I’m not sure…maybe just inside a globe of some sort to diffuse it?

Oh and PS, this was the code that I was working on for 4 weeks with no success. It ended up that I had missed a pin, the code was correct. As soon as I soldered the lost pin and got this working, without me pushing a button it said, “Could You Be Stupid?” Reeeeal nice…More debugging to come…

I just have to say…

that after 4 WEEKS of thinking I had a defective wave shield, I just now realized that I missed the soldering of one pin. Seriously?! ONE PIN?! I mean, it iiiiiis a surface mounted pin, so that makes me feel a little bit better. But does not make up for the 28 days and nights that I spent obsessing over code. Double woof.

Color Capture

Although the sound in this experiment is irrelevant, I still enjoy the fact that this team took the time’n’tech to capture the sculptures. I don’t disagree that they can be called “sound sculptures” but I think that the lack of mention of the source of sound material exposes their dismissal of it’s relevance. Maybe this is because the project was specifically for Canon…Still, it would be interesting to see someone appropriate this idea (not the sound pulsing liquid on a speaker as that is actually done quite often) but the care into choosing the liquid (in this case ink), the sound input, and the documentation simultaneously.
